Written by FM News 101 KXL on June 28, 2014

A man and woman killed friday evening in an apparent murder suicide were a married couple.  Police believe 60-year-old Jack Soumphonpackdy shot his wife 42 -year- old Maria to death, then shot himself. She had recently filed for divorce. Sgt. Pete Simpson says it started as a domestic disturbance call to the Amber Court Apartments at 141st and SE Division.

“When officers arrived at the scene they learned that there might be an injured woman inside the apartment so officers entered immediately to rescue the victim. As officers were beginning to search the apartment  they heard a shot inside.”

Police then retreated and called in the SERT team, who fired tear gas into the apartment. Later police searched the apartment and found a man and a woman dead.
